Several of my pals had their sites rated by Typealyzer. I fed it the URLs of all my Wordpress sites, and apparently I am an ISTJ twice, and once each an ESFP, ESFS, INTJ, and INTP.

i followed yellowjkt’s directions except I used Flickr’s Creative Commons Attribution/Non-commercial filter to pick IMG_4894 (which really looks much better uncropped), by noswonky.
My quote was Ernest Hemmingway’s “Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know.” (I think I’d heard that before and suppressed it, as I probably will again.) My random wiki page, […]

If you happen to have commented on this site on Friday afternoon, chances are your comment was swallowed up by the ether. Sorry ’bout that.
